For the unversed, the Elon Musk-owned social media platform had removed blue ticks from legacy accounts, which had not purchased its paid Blue service. As a result, many celebrities to the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Shahid Kapoor and others lost the blue checkmark on their Twitter handle on Friday.
Soon, blue ticks of many of the celebrities were restored in a day or two. Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan, however had the quirkiest way of expressing his gratitude. He wrote, “Tu cheez badi hai musk musk.” To those who are seeking some context, Amitabh Bachchan interchanged the lyrics of the song Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast from the 1994 film Mohra to thank Elon Musk.

Twitter had earlier announced the implementation of paid subscription service which charges USD 8 for blue verification badge on the microblogging site. Those who didn’t pay up or buy the service in time lost the blue checkmark on their handles.
“On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue,” Twitter said in a post in March.
